Aeroplan and Journie Rewards - The partnership

Aeroplan Members who do not have a Journie Rewards account or who have not linked their account can obtain :

  • 1 Aeroplan point earned per 3-litre fuel purchase;
  • 1 Aeroplan point earned per $1 eligible convenience store purchase; and
  • 3,500 Aeroplan points redemption for $25 Parkland fuel branded gift cards via the Aeroplan eStore.

To earn even more rewards, link your Aeroplan and Journie Rewards accounts together. Members of both programs enjoy the following benefits:

  • Earn up to 3X more points compared to members who have not linked their accounts. More specifically, earn 300 Aeroplan points for every 300-point JOURNIE™ Rewards tier (which is equivalent to 1 Aeroplan point per 1-litre fuel purchase and 2 points per $1 on eligible in-store purchases);
  • Redeem 300 Aeroplan points for a $0.07 off per litre voucher for a single fill-up (up to 50 litres), and stack up to 5 vouchers for up to $0.35 off per litre;
  • Redeem 1,200 Aeroplan points for a $15.99 Premium Car wash;
  • Redeem 500 Aeroplan points for a $5 in-store purchase voucher.

To link your Aeroplan and Journie Rewards accounts together, visit the Journie Rewards mobile app. The process is simple and all you have to do is log in to your Aeroplan account.


For electric vehicles

Parkland has fast-charging stations (up to 150 kW) in British Columbia and Alberta. Its network is with ON the RUN and partnered with Journie.

When the future partnership was announced last April, mention was made of rewards for recharging electric cars. Aeroplan and Parkland Group did not provide any details today.

There are currently no Parkland gas stations in the province of Quebec connected to a network of electric charging stations. There are of course charging stations in Ultramar gas stations, but they are associated with Circuit Électrique or ChargePoint. Groupe Parkland does not own these stations, so there is no accumulation of Aeroplan points.

It does not appear to have any plans to expand eastwards. It’s a shame, because Quebec is the province with the most electric and hybrid vehicles in Canada.

Do you own an electric vehicle? Here are the best credit cards of the moment to save on your EV charging:

Credit cards to save on fuel

Until now, savings on every liter of gasoline are available through the Journie Rewards program with the following cash back cards: the CIBCMD Visa Infinite* Dividend Card and the CIBCMD Visa* Platinum Dividend Card.

Those who prefer to use Aeroplan points rather than cash back can already use these two credit cards to earn 1.5 Aeroplan points for every dollar spent on gas:

A great alternative would be to use the American Express Business Edge® Card, which earns 3 Membership Rewards points per dollar on gas.

Or the American Express Cobalt® Card, which earns 2 Membership Rewards points per dollar spent on gas.

Since Membership Rewards points are flexible and can be transferred to the Aeroplan program at a 1:1 ratio, that’s 2 to 3 Aeroplan points per dollar for gas, in addition to the 1 Aeroplan point per liter of gas with Journie Rewards!

And if you prefer to use your Membership Rewards points for cash back on your credit card account, that’s 2-3% per dollar.

This gives you flexibility in how you use your Reward Points.

Loyalty programs and gas stations

Shell and the AIR MILES program have had a partnership since 1992 and will continue for some time. Given the uncertain future of AIR MILES and this important announcement about the Aeroplan – Journie partnership, Shell is in a delicate position.

Shell is owned by Groupe Empire, which also owns the Scène+ program. This program is not yet linked to a major service station chain, like PC Optimum with Esso for example.

Bottom Line

This new feature allows greater flexibility in the accumulation and redemption of Aeroplan points. Whether it’s to reduce your gas bill in your day-to-day car use, to reach a goal in points that will help pay for an upcoming trip, or to save money on a road trip across Canada, it’s just one more way to use your Aeroplan points the way you want, according to your plans and lifestyle.
